The Boss We have all experienced traumatic incidents in our lives Some of us have endured more than others But the question remains How much is enough At what point is a person tired of fighting When will a person give up hope for survival Such is the question that confronts the boss in Katherine Mansfields short story The Fly The boss is an intelligent and determined individual who has overcome many obstacles in his life However he is now confronted with an insurmountable barrier that he is frightened of facing --the death of his only son The boss in this story although resilient has come to realize that people do have limits The boss is an extremely resilient individual He has endured a great amount and is able to use these experiences to catapult himself to the top A business is extremely difficult to start and once started there are many obstacles to face The road to a successful business is a very treacherous one that leaves many people heartbroken or hopeless The boss is an example of someone who has traveled this treacherous road successfully and therefore has a thriving business The boss is shown to be intelligent through his success and also by the way he contemplates a situation before making a decision or an assumption For example when the boss is confronted with the fly he doesnt merely think of the fly as insignificant On the contrary the boss examines the flys actions questions them and experiments to find out more It is also shown that the boss likes to prepare for the future through how the boss had been building up his business for the sole purpose of leaving it to his only son So as you can see the boss was a fighter He was a survivor He was the type of person to face all obstacles with a positive mind and resolve within himself to overcome these
